Celebration: Buninyong Senior Citizens Club vice-president Jan Antosiewicz and life member Vic Bradley celebrate the club’s 40th anniversary.PICTURE: ADAM TRAFFORDABOUT 50 senior citizens gathered to celebrate a 40th anniversary on Tuesday.
Like any other party the event had a cake, food and musician to provide entertainment.
However, the celebrations focused not on a person, but the anniversary of the Buninyong Senior Citizens Club.
The club’s vice-president Jan Antosiewicz said the event provided an outing for members from a number of senior citizens clubs across Ballarat.
“It is a great way of making friendships, a lot of these people have been together for a very long time and they look forward to catching up every Tuesday, they have weekly lunches every Tuesday,” she said.
Ballarat MP Catherine King was also present for the celebrations.
Ms Antosiewicz said the group meets at the Buninyong Town Hall once a week but often participates in other events such as bingo or carpet bowls.
“This year there has been a number of younger people come in and help with the executive positions because some of the other people have been getting older,” she said.
